A New Years Wish to All My Blogging Friends

I look to the new year and my wish for you;

Peace within your heart

Love from family and friends

Faith to guide your way

Hope to to make it through each day

Sunshine to light the day
Heavenly Stars to wish upon

Rainbows to to let you know there is a tomorrow
A tear to show compassion

A heart to hold the love

But most of all I wish for you

to feel my hand in yours,

To know I am here if you stumble or fall.

To bring you cheer, to bring you love,

to return the love you always share with me.

My progress as a seller on Etsy
Can you believe it is just a few more days and we are in 2011
I joined Etsy in December 2008, started selling in December 2009
All my sales have been through custom orders obtained in 2010
I participated in my first fair in December 2010, it was a good experience
I see my progress as slow but steady
First Sale


1: I would like to participate in at least 4 fairs this year - will keep you posted

2: Blog every week, I am sure I can find something to blog about

5: List up one item per week - I need to be more creative

6: Think and write positively

7: Organise my time and my work area more effectively - I have started with my cotton

8:  Promote Promote where ever I can

9: Long term goal to work part time in my full time job and part time in my hobby that I enjoy

Cooking With Fire

As some of you may or may not be aware my paid job is supporting people who find it difficult to engage in society to live fulfilling lives, and to do this I train volunteers and match them to individual people, I also run a weekly support group.

At Christmas I generally provide a meal for my clients and to save on the budget this year I decided to cook, yeah I cook as well.

Now in the summer my brother laid my new laminate and in the process he found that my all singing all dancing cooker had burned a hole in the floor board. For no reason that I can I explain, I decided to cook chicken pieced in the oven and make a macaroni and cheese pie, IN THE OVEN - I did attempt to cover the floor hoping that the cooker would not burn my new floor, DUH! WRONG!

Did I worry when the kitchen filled with somke? Did I worry when my eyes started to sting? Did I worry when I saw flames glowing under the cooker, HELL YES.

Panic setting in I filled a pan of water and threw it under the cooker, NO JOY, so I tried again success, flames disappeared, I waited checking and fearful that the flames were slower creeping under the floor boards, but fortunately the double pan of water did the trick and a full blown fire was averted.

I have not the heart to look under the cooker to examine the damage. Ignorance is bliss.

Oh the food? the clients loved the food and the staff lapped up the left overs.

I am still avoiding the moment of truth, would one of you be willing to check it out for me?
